During the week Harry Redknapp spoke in typical Redknappese about the chances of Robbie Keane signing for Birmingham.
'Good player Robbie. You'd love to have him around the football club. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't interested. Nothing happening at the moment but it's not an impossibility.'
Sky Sports report today that Keane is indeed interested in making a season at Birmingham that final challenge he spoke about when leaving LA Galaxy.
If Redknapp and Keane's dance is not consummated, the former Ireland captain, who turned 37 on Saturday, does reportedly have other options.
Former Spurs and Man Utd striker Teddy Sheringham was recently roped into becoming manager of Indian Super League side Atletico de Kolkata.
According to The Irish Sun's Owen Cowzer, the 51-year-old Sheringham wants to make Keane his marquee player for the new season.
Sheringham has not yet been confirmed as boss of Kolkata but is set to be unveiled shortly.
A source told the Times of India that Keane is currently 'assessing his options as he has offers from a lot of second-tier English clubs'.
The Indian Super League does have the added attractiveness of being a short season, running from early October to mid-December.
